We have had numerous issues with Woodridge Elementary. We have pulled our oldest three times to home school because of issues surround other children teasing and tormenting our child. The busses are out of control with no one watching the kids in the back. I have requested many times to have my kindergartener ride in the front (thought that was required) with no luck. We are in the process of pulling all our children from Woodridge. (6 kids total) Until they redistrict the low income housing this school will continue to fail. Currently 4 are in the district because no other district wants them. They also keep asking for more money and it isn't solving the problem. I bought my middle schooler supplies this year and he watched them being handed out to the kids who didn't buy them. Parent's are no longer able to walk to their children into the classroom. Not sure what is going on with their holiday party policies either.

Wow! Amazing 2 months at Woodridge Primary! I moved my 1st grader from an Akron Public School to Woodridge Primary after noticing that she was not progressing in school! I was astonished at how far behind she was and more astonished at all the time and resources dedicated to her to help her catch-up! Best move I have ever made!

I think the primary school is wonderful. Always looking out for the kids. We are very sad that we moved and cannot go to woodridge schools. All of the teachers are wonderful. Always always ready to do what is in the best interest of the kids. Highly, highly recommend.

Continuous Improvement in 2 of the schools. Discipline issues. We lasted one year before pulling our kids.

Woodridge teachers go above and beyond for the students. Our 4 children have attended 3 different school districts, due to my husband's work relocations. We have never seen a more dedicated or intelligent group of teachers as those at Woodridge. They are awesome! The primary school teachers in particular are very caring and loving to the students and have excellent communication skills with the parents. This is a very diverse district with its fair share of disadvantaged students but the teachers mold and educate these children to insure they grow to their fullest potential. I can't say enough about the excellent teachers at Woodridge!

My daughter has been attending the Woodridge schools for seven years. The teachers are awesome! She went from a D average (before Woodridge) to a 'B+' average at Woodridge. The teachers care about the students at Woodridge. I would recommend woodridge district to other parents. Overall, my daughter enjoys school and I am proud to be a parent from the Woodridge district.

I would never attempt to speak for others, but for our family Woodridge is a mixed blend of positive and negative. Teachers are hardworking and often overworked but most seem to care about the kids. The playground at the primary school does not provide enough adult monitors.

Wow, my children have attended Woodridge schools for 8 years and I am very satisfied with the education provided for them. Public school funding in Ohio is crazy, but our levy passed!

We have had children in the Woodridge school district for 7 years and are happy with each of the 3 schools our children have attended so far. (Elementary and Middle schools) There is a very diverse culture in our district and not all children are well-behaved, but that is true in almost any school system. My children have not had any problems with fighting or bullying. The teachers do go well beyond simply teaching the children. One teacher that we had signed a 'disadvantaged' child up for summer baseball, bought him a glove and drove him to practices. The Woodridge district has high parental involvement as well as pride in educating all students even if they don't look the same or come from the same family environment. The private schools cannot say the same as they turn away many families that don't 'fit their mold'.

This comment is in response to the comment above dated February 2004. I recently moved to the Woodridge School District. Because I have two children, I did a tremendous amount of research on the Woodridge schools before moving here. Based on my research and my personal experiences, I can assure you the comments made above are almost entirely inaccurate. The schools here are excellent. Woodridge students score among the highest in Summit on the SATs and ACTs. Teachers actually take the time and make the effort to know the children they teach. The personal touch they place on education goes beyond comparison. My children love riding the bus and prefer it to getting rides to school. I do agree that our district is rich in cultural and socio-economic diversity. However, I see that as a positive, because it reflects the world in which we live.

If you are looking for discipline, this is not the school for you; there is none to be found. The children are so out of control on the buses, the routes have been changed to get rid of these children first. This instead of discipline. There is fighting, hitting, name calling, standing, and running on the bus, yet nobody seems to want to face the problem head on. There is no feeling of community pride in the school district because it is so spread out. It seems any area that is not wanted by other schools is pushed into this system. A school district of roughly 1800 children supports four low income housing projects. Projects not wanted by other districts again dumped into Woodridge. The system begs for money yearly in levies that always fail, because 70% in the area send their children to private schools. Citizens fear for the safety of their children in school. Levies are not passed, as more children are forced to attend private schools for safetys sake. To sum up the district...scary. If the levy fails in Spring 2004, the schools loose Art, Music, Library, P.E., and all after school programs. Next year I join the masses, my 7 year old daughter will not be back, for safetys sake.

Community ratings and reviews do not represent the views of GreatSchools nor does GreatSchools check their accuracy or verify the reviewers' identities. Use your discretion when evaluating these reviews.

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

Oops! We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Public and charter school test scores for most states come from the state Department of Education. The most common reasons we might not have this data are either that not enough students took the test or that the school was recently opened, and its scores have not yet been reported.

What is the GreatSchools Rating?

The GreatSchools rating is a simple tool for parents to compare schools based on test scores, student academic growth, and college readiness. It compares schools across the state, where the highest rated schools in the state are designated as “Above Average” and the lowest “Below Average.” It is designed to be a starting point to help parents make baseline comparisons. We always advise parents to visit the school and consider other information on school performance and programs, as well as consider their child's and family's needs as part of the school selection process.
